Welcome and Checkout partner to support Channel Islands’ hoteliers

Northamptonshire, UK-based hotel booking software specialists Welcome Systems has appointed Checkout (CI) Ltd as the sole agent in The Channel Islands for its Welcome Anywhere hotel bookings and enquiry management system.

Welcome Systems’ Managing Director, John Jones, explains:

“As part of our growth strategy we’ve identified a gap in the market. Hotel management systems aimed at large hospitality chains are unprepared to support independent hoteliers based outside of the mainland.

“UK Hoteliers love Welcome Anywhere’s ease of use, regularly updated features and straightforward monthly subscription.

“The days of expensive, outdated booking systems are gone and we plan to break new ground in the Channel Islands by bringing our next generation product to hotels, B&Bs and guest houses there.

“We only partner with the best and Checkout (CI) Ltd, with offices in Jersey and Guernsey, is the leading provider of electronic point of sale systems (EPOS) in the Channel Islands. Offering invaluable local knowledge, expertise and connections, Welcome Anywhere is a natural addition to their product range. This agreement was a no-brainer!”

Mike Le Conte, CEO Checkout (CI) Ltd, adds: “Our own EPOS software providers interface with many different hospitality management systems and they recommended Welcome Anywhere as the most innovative and impressive they’ve ever seen.

“The Channel Islands have a fantastic selection of mostly independent hotels. Everyone knows everyone else here, and recommendation is absolutely key.

“The introduction of Welcome Anywhere is a huge opportunity for the Islands. There is a high demand for staff, who often switch between hotels, so having an intuitive online management system that can easily manage bookings and guest enquiries 24/7 is vital.

“A major advantage over other UK providers needing to deliver training or on-site assistance is that they have to get on a plane. We can be with our clients in about 15 minutes.”
